This is the first official and complete hymnal according to the rite of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch. The Hymnal provides chants from various Syriac chant traditions that have the strongest potential value and usefulness to the Syriac community.
All hymns contained in this hymnal have been prepared according to the liturgical and modal cycles of the liturgical year to suit the theme and mode of every given occasion. This organization of chants will reinforce the importance of the doctrine of Syriac Christians and emphasize their theological heritage as well as the importance of order in worship.
The entire collection of hymns found in this hymnal are transcribed into musical notation system (for music readers), English translation (to understand theological reasoning behind each hymn), Latin transliteration (for non-Syriac readers), and Syriac text (for Syriac readers). The Syriac Hymnal comes with a hard cover, leather-bound with gold foil blocking on the cover, and displays standard features like many Western hymnals used in other Christian denominations.
